I believe I solved the problem with French Canadian keymaps.
I changed /usr/share/i18n/keymaps. I edited the line where it says "cf% (canada)" to "qc%(canada)"

Basic problem is: The console keymap 'cf' and 'ca' for Xorg seems legacy Canadian French keyboard layout, and the modern(?) 'qc' has no corresponding console keymap.

We can put 'qc' on the /usr/share/i18n/keymaps,
but note that the console keymap is set to 'us' in this case. If we are running Xvesa, not Xorg, there is no way because the Xvesa follows the console keymap... Sad

Anyway, thanks jemimah for the information.

What I didn't figure out, is why cf won't stick. Probably this problem exists with other console keymaps,

firstrun-1.7
/usr/sbin/countrywizard.qs
# 9jan11 v1.7: read Xorg driver name from xorg.conf or from /var/log/Xorg.0.log
# : fix change_xrandr was crash with multiple monitors, CLOCKFLICKER, 'us' keymap near the top
/etc/rc.d/rc.country
# 5jan11 backward compatibility loadkeys
# 9jan11 ASKKMAP the list order when pfix=nox (depends on the rc.sysinit)

It does not support 'qc'(Quebec). You can add the entry in the /usr/share/i18n/keymaps as jemimah says.

PostPosted: Mon 31 Jan 2011, 04:55    Post subject: GMT+-n issue  

An issue: GMT+n/GMT-n may be reverted to UTC.
Solution: Remove the file /usr/share/i18n/timezones if it exists.
Edit: Yes, it is 'timezones'. Thanks jemimah.

For pupplet distributors:
  1. Remove the file /usr/share/i18n/timezones.
  2. After removing, run countrywizard.
  3. /tmp/contrywizard-timezones will be generated. (or another names /tmp/*-timezones)
  4. Rename it and copy as the new /usr/share/i18n/timezones.

I've got a /usr/share/i18n/timezones file, should that be removed from the distro?

Thanks jemimar for the correction.
The problem was the old timezones file uses '@' for the separator.
Quote:
GMT+8@Perth,Singapore,Hongkong

Should be '%'.

GMT+8%Perth,Singapore,Hongkong

Hello Shinobar,
Do you plan to integrate the proposed change here?

FirstRUN has become the standard for desktop startups across Puppyland for many disto developers.

I have found a bug. It is low level, but could use attention because of it uses. It involves the HOSTNAME,

And, it is reported here.

PostPosted: Fri 22 Jul 2011, 22:58    Post subject: firstrun-1.8.4pet  

Sorry to be late to upload. The version 1.8.4 is the latest and built in the Wary-511-01q.
Get the most recent version, firstrun-1.8.4pet (1 Apr 2011) from here..

@ASRI éducation
It has fixed the ROX-filer speed slowing down.

@gcmartin
The HOSTNAME issue may be found in some applications who do not read /etc/profile.
But there are no problem on the urxvt terminal because it reads /etc/profile.

@Shinobar.. See this BEFORE you next update. See "Personalize Settings" image there.
Edited 2011-08-13: HOSTNAME Solved by contributions from @TazOC. Please review and incorporate. See HERE! Saves logout or rebooting.
Edited 2011-08-15:[size=13]PM Internationalization issues exist in video on SLACKO - this is a problem you may well understand.

Hope this helps

shinobar,

I wonder if it would it be possible to put a windowmanager selection screen into firstrun, so the user could select which one of those installed, they want to run by default?

regards
scsijon
